Pulock, Roy taken in NHL draft

Sunday was a day to remember for Brandon Wheat Kings Ryan Pulock and Eric Roy as both were selected in the NHL draft in New Jersey.

Pulock, a 6-foot-1, 211-pound defenceman from Grandview, was the first to be picked. The New York Islanders scooped up Brandon's captain, who led the team with 45 points, including 14 goals, in 61 games this season, 15th overall.

Roy had to wait a little longer. The Calgary Flames selected the Beauval, Sask., native in the fifth round, 135th overall. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound defenceman had 17 goals and 39 points in 72 games with the Wheat Kings last season.

Nathan MacKinnon, a centre for the Memorial Cup champion Halifax Mooseheads was selected first overall by the Colorado Avalanche. Portland's Seth Jones was the first WHL player to be picked. He went fourth overall to the Nashville Predators.
